At last week's International Security Conference West, Hikvision demonstrated digital video security product series based on digital media processors from Texas Instruments Inc. (TI).

According to the press release, the TMS320DM64x digital media processor family, which now includes DaVinci technology, has become the mainstream platform for digital video and media applications in the industry. It features a C64x DSP core and integrates multiple high precision video ports, seamless Ethernet interfaces, multi-channel audio ports and high speed PCI interfaces on the chip.

Additionally, the new 720MHz platform promises higher performances to support HD video steaming and Hi-fi broadcasting applications. It supports the fast object detection and tracking in video surveillance applications, streaming media applications, and multiple channel decoding and network transmission for image enhancements as well as better audio quality and system control in other video applications, TI said.

"TI's software programmable digital media processors enable better flexibility for product development and accelerate time to market. The compatibility of our digital media processors also make it easy for our customer in transiting to new TI DSP platforms and developing their future products," said Eldon Teng, director of DSP/MCU business development, TI Asia.

"Software programmability benefits us with high-speed, flexible and easy upgrade. Its rich peripheral enables lower product complexity and cost," commented Hu Yangzong, general manager of Hikvision. "We are committed to constantly improving and optimizing our algorithms and hope to develop more new digital video surveillance products based on TI's next generation digital media platform."

To strengthen technical cooperation, Hikvision and TI have established a joint DSP Solutions Lab in March. The lab is dedicated for research and development in advanced digital video technical solutions for the Chinese and international market, driving continuous digital video innovations.
